Краткое описание

Research on cyanobacteria of prehistoric caves of Nahal Me'arot Nature Reserve was continued in Jamal Cave. Cyanoprocaryotes dominated in nine of 12 studied sites; two sites were occupied mostly by chlorococcal algae; diatoms appeared as single cells. In total, 29 species of 19 genera were revealed by direct microscopic observation and in cultures. Gloeocapsa Kütz. (4 species) and Gloeothece Nag. (3) were the richest in species. The majority of cyanoprocaryotes found in the cave are aerophytic, atmophytic, and terrestrial forms. The most common species were Gloeothece confluens and Chroococcidiopsis kashaii. Pseudophormidium edaphicum, Anabaena sp. ster., Cylindrospermum licheniforme, Scytonema julianum, S. javanicum, Tolypothrix tenuis f. terrestris, Nostoc linckia, and N. punctiforme grew luxuriantly in the cultures. Among species found in Jamal Cave, 17 were known previously from other caves, rocks, and soils of Mount Carmel National Park. Synechocystis pevalekii, Chroococcopsis fluviatilis, Porphyrosiphon luteus, Scytonema javanicum, Tolypothrix tenuis f. terrestris, and Calothrix pulvinata are the first records for Israel.
